In a context where:

  • religious affiliation continues to decline,
  • the “nones” are the fastest growing demographic among young people,
  • barely 12% of Millennials are engaged in the life of the Church,
  • for every 1 adult convert who enters the Church, 4 drift away, either into secular humanism or the world of evangelical Christianity,
  • the number of Hispanics who identify as Catholics continues to shrink,

. . . how do we move parishes from a focus on maintenance of existing programs and structure to an approach where evangelization and the formation of life-long, fruitful disciples of the Lord is central to the mission of the parish?  The November 19 clergy study day will give an opportunity to explore these issues with renowned author and speaker Sherry Weddell.
